After some 13-months of post-demolition work at 500 E. 14th St., it appears as if the foundation is set here on the corner of Avenue A... as least that's what it looks like via the handy blogger portals in the plywood...
The pumps have been going 24/7 to dewater the property for Extell Development's two 7-floor retail-residential buildings. (A quick reminder: 500 E. 14th St. will have 106 residential units … while, further to the east, 524 E. 14th St. will house 44 residential units.)
As the developers at 432-438 E. 14th St. a block to the west have discovered, there are elevated groundwater levels and soft soil courtesy of an underground stream.
Anyway, Extell Lake seems to be a memory now at No. 500.
